NEW YORK, NY, January 05, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Affiliate Summit West conference will take place in Las Vegas from the 8th to the 10th of January 2012. This is the foremost event for affiliate marketing, and the 2012 summit will be the 19th conference to be held.
Affiliate marketing is a method of marketing whereby an enterprise rewards its affiliates for customers or visitors generated by the affiliate's marketing efforts, and with the ever-increasing Internet trade, this field has grown rapidly since its early days. There are four main players in the affiliate marketing game: the merchant (sometimes called the retailer or brand), the network (the options from which the affiliate chooses; also handles the payment aspects), the affiliate (or publisher) and the customer. The rapid growth in the affiliate marketing arena has led to the establishment of a second level of players - affiliate agencies. In keeping with this breakdown of players, the attendees at the Affiliate Summit can be divided into five main groups: affiliates, merchants, agencies, networks, and vendors, with affiliates accounting for more than 25% of all summit attendees. As the field has expanded and grown, the attendance at the Affiliate Summit has also increased steadily since the first summits. The 2012 Affiliate Summit promises a content-rich three day program, including sessions such as Increasing Website Revenue by Driving Social Behaviors, Are your affiliates adding value? and more. The summit also has a panel of speakers, all of whom are industry leaders in their fields.
Payoneer considers two sides of the affiliate marketing equation, looking at both the benefits of being a Payoneer affiliate and the benefits to those who receive payment using the Payoneer card.

Payoneer provides a comprehensive system that addresses the online payment process from beginning to end, leaving the control of the payment process fully in the hands of the paying party. For the recipient there are also advantages - there is no need for a bank account, funds can be accessed as soon as they have been loaded to the card, and the prepaid cards can be used for purchases. These advantages make the Payoneer solution ideal for paying companies and affiliates, and eliminate the need for intermediary parties.
